As of this moment, I will not accept any more backport requests for Warty. I've hit practically everything you guys have wanted.

I've gained a lot of knowledge and insight of how to improve this process for Hoary, so I'd like this 3 month period to develop a PHP/MySQL driven system for managing backports. This will lead to expanded "contributed packages" and possibility of multiple maintainers for architectures.


All the backports requested that I've promised to will be finished. No new backports will be made.

I'm also considering "auto-backport" shellscripts, if I can master them!

No -- I'm running a Apache+subversion+MySQL+PHP setup on my desktop, which requires security updates and stability. I'm quite satisfied with Warty for this.

P.S. I have had a system at school running Hoary ever since its opening. I still play with it a bit. However, I've experienced a few breakages that required gentoo-style fixing & tweaking, so I don't think I want to deal with that on a server!
